  • public-apis

    A collective list of free APIs

  • Project mention: Building a Basic Forex Rate Assistant Using Agents for Amazon Bedrock | | 2024-04-29

    For inspirations on what type of agents I should build, I turned to the Public APIs GitHub repository which has a curated lists of free APIs. I narrowed my search for an API that does not require sign-up or an API key and returns useful information. I ultimately decided to use the Free Currency Exchange Rates API, which seemed promising upon some basic testing.

  • bevy

    A refreshingly simple data-driven game engine built in Rust

  • Project mention: Voronoi, Manhattan, random | | 2024-04-26

    Bevy. A very young engine where you need to write the game entirely in Rustโ€”that was appealing. But fatal flaws overshadowed everything: no editor, the engine brutally enforces the ECS approach, and the game's architecture must literally bend to fit this paradigm. So, you won't migrate to another engine at allโ€”you just throw away all the code and start from scratch.

  • Wiki.js

  • Project mention: Adding a simple light box in wiki.js | | 2024-03-20

    Wiki.js is a self hosted, open source Wiki that has a lot of awesome functionality. Unfortunately it's lacking some small, but important UI features, like a light box, to enlarge downsized images to it's full size. And unless you want to add a link to each image, to open it in a new tab, you would probably go for a modal view here.
